Hi--I just randomly came across your blog through Blogger's "next blog" arrow. I enjoyed the Nesterov art you posted! Have you been to Moscow? I've lived here for four years.

Symbolist! What a find! Another thanks to you, Jeffrey.

Actually, Russia is a long way from the Orkneys. I too am nosey -- what is the story?

Jeffrey Smith said...

I've never been there, but it's always fascinated me. Recessive genes, perhaps. I have Russian ancestors, very far back, as do most of the old British families.

Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!

Ditto on the fourth one too.

God bless you, Jeffrey:)

Irene said...

Jeffrey - That's because both the English and the Russian ancestors were vikings.

Jeffrey Smith said...

For that matter, Rurik was an uncle or something to the founder of the Norse Earls of Orkney.
